The wine is almost pitch black with a red rim. Classically beautiful notes of cassis, raspberry, and blackberry in an intense nose are echoed on the palate. Beautifully integrated oak and chewy fine tannins mingle with the aforementioned fruit flavors to create a rich and powerful cuvée. Structurally dense, this wine benefits from a good hour or so in the decanter and has excellent ageing potential.

In early 2008 we informed one of our best wine brokers that we had a special project coming up, were looking for something special, and were willing to pay to get it. After many months of searching and much turned-down product, a Stags Leap producer said he would be willing to put together a blend for us. Months later, we arrived at the Stags Leap Cabernet final blend and were ready to bottle it up when winemaker David said he could take it one step further if we could wait just a bit longer. We figured we had come this far .... With the addition of two more wines—another Cabernet and a splash of Petit Verdot—this wine really took off.
